On Sept. 4, parents and staff received an email about a positive Covid-19 case.

The email read, “The Johnston Community School District learned today that a student at JHS has tested positive for COVID-19.” They then explained that said student was not in close proximity to other students, which is considered within six feet for more than 15minutes. “Consequently, your student SHOULD plan on attending school on (purple) Tuesday.” the email continued.

The name of the students will not be released due to privacy reasons, the district states “We share this news with you so you can make well-informed decisions for your family” also saying you should continue to socially distance and monitor your symptoms.

The email ended with words of gratitude towards JCSD families and staff, and to, “Please continue to practice the recommended preventative steps to remain healthy.”
